As I mentioned last week, I am planning to go in a more structured direction to give myself a kind of map for where it is I am heading.
Good news!! That could change! But, I am going to try this out for at least 6 months, maybe the next year, before I decide to do it differently.
That doesn’t mean it won’t evolve over that time. Because truthfully, I am just making this up as I go along. 🙂
This week I thought I would just introduce the topics for the rest of this year that I have planned. Again…. it could change, but this is the plan for now:
- June 2023 – Goals & Sustainability
- July 2023 – Love Your Body
- August 2023 – Back to School
- September 2023 – A Time of Harvest
- October 2023 – Seasons of Change
- November 2023 – Gratitude as a Practice
- December 2023 – Finish Strong – Start Strong
I am working on becoming more focused and clear about what it is I want to accomplish. I have spent the past several months deciding what I am trying to create in my life and my business. It is ever evolving but I have a much more concise vision than I did a year ago.
While I have thoughts and ideas for each of these topics and the subsequent weekly topics to support them, I would love to hear your ideas or suggestions of what would be helpful for you.
Do you have any questions for me? I would love to answer those questions and help you see that more often than we realize, the things we have questions about are things others have questions about as well.
If you have things you would like me to write about I would love for you to email me! Just send a quick note to email@example.com and let me know what’s on your mind.
In the works is the inauguration of a bi-weekly (maybe? Could turn into weekly?) email series, “A Weekly Dose of “GOOD”. I would love to have you come and join me there as well! Look for that to start in the fall.
These emails will be discussing these same topics along with questions and answers, and other things that might be more time sensitive. More than just sharing information, I am hoping to grow the connection I have with you as my reader, so I would really love to open that dialogue.
Part of me is a little nervous and scared about all of this because most of my life I have needed to know what to expect next so that I could show up in the best light possible. If I was going to show up in a less-than-optimal light, I would rather not show up.
But I no longer want to stay hiding. I want to share what I have found and what has made a difference for me and for so many of the clients I coach.
This is scary because I am aware that I don’t always control the outcome. I have decided to let go of the need for perfection. That doesn’t mean I don’t still want to be able to show up perfectly. I am moving toward letting go of some of that perfection and still showing up.
As I build up the muscles of doing things less than perfectly, I want to continue to create more things to share with the world.
That could look like an online course, or Masterclass. It could even look like starting a podcast or writing a book or even multiple books!! Who knows what becomes possible when I give myself the freedom to be bad at it in the beginning?!
So if you could let go of some of that outcome control in your life, what could be different?
What might you be willing to try?
How might you be able to change your influence?
What do you want to create?
I believe we all have contributions to make to the world. And I believe that there are times when moving forward on those contributions seems impossible.
I’m Michelle. I am learning how to minimize my overwhelm, perfectionism, and people-pleasing and I am ready to help you do the same. I’m a certified Life Coach and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Come with me and learn how.
That is what it is like to be a human being. The thing that gets in the way of what we want to achieve is most often our own thoughts and feelings.
If this is something you have experienced, or if it is something you are trying to work through, I would love to talk about it with you!
I know having a trusted coach to talk things through helps me to see things from new perspectives I hadn’t seen before. And when I can see more options, I begin to realize there is a lot more possible than what I may have previously thought.
I am learning as I go. I am becoming more willing to be a beginner at things I want to do in my life. I am becoming more willing to be uncomfortable, even when it doesn’t feel good….even when the result is not what I anticipated or hoped it would be.
“It’s ALL good…. in the end. If it’s not good it’s not the end.”
Keeping that in mind, some of this might be bad. It might be hard for me to follow a schedule, or to “come up with” something of value on each of these topics.
But it will also help me grow and develop different skills than those I have developed to this point. And after all, that is really the point of this.
So remember…..It’s ALL good!!
